Monday= Done. Phillies= Not.

The Fightins do their best to give everyone a heart attack, but thanks to Cliff Lee and Chase Utley's MLB record tying 5th postseason homerun, defeat the Spankees 8-6. Now the Phils will have to go back to the Bronx and face 37-year-old Andy Pettite on 3 days rest, followed by C.C. Sabathia on the same. Just please keep Cole Hamels and Brad Lidge away from the mound. Go Phillies.

Other than that, not a particularly big news day.

First check out this article about how congressman Joe Sestak hosted a webinar at the Fox School of Business in which University reps from around the state could tune in to find out the transition to direct lending for all government-financed student loans. What does that mean? We have no clue, but go Temple!

Temple students doing their thing once again. This article mentions how Temple's landscape architecture students are behind big design plans in Cape May. Temple students will be visiting local elementary schools to get the youngsters' opinions on what they want in new parks that will be built. Blank check anyone?

If you're a journalism major and haven't heard about the Philadelphia Initiative for Journalistic Innovation this Saturday, you're definitely going to want to check it out. As seen here, the dudes from alums) will be visited, along with a shit load of other successful entrepreneurs. Worried about making money after graduation? Can't say there wasn't anything at Temple to help.

From the Temple newsroom, this article discusses how Temple is hosting latino students from local highschools in an effort to encourage them to consider jobs in the medical field, where that ethnicity is underrepresented. No word on whether or not the students were asked to sign non-disparagement agreements.

Finally, holy shit, Temple football got a vote in the AP poll. That's huge.

In upcoming news, don't forget to look for the latest edition of the Temple News tomorrow. Also, we've got a host of student interviews lined up for this week, so check back daily for those.

Monday is over, get some sleep Owls and we'll see ya in the morning.
